I don't see why an exotic design made in-house with "very, very good" performance attributes can't cost under $150,000.

    Former Lamborghini designer reportedly headed to Hyundai

    Luc Donckerwolke (pictured above) only left his position as the Director of Design for Bentley in early June, but he might have already had a new gig lined up as he was walking out the door.

    I think the Vette proves we don't need a giant pricetag to compete with the overpriced Euro's.

    I posted a concept Hyundai exotic that still looks amazing today. I won't be near that computer until Monday unfortunately but I'm sure it's floating around somewhere.

    I agree but I'm thinking something more Lamborghini-like than a Corvette.

    It was a long time ago but I think it was called the Nemesis.

    He designed Lamborghinis... once upon a time. He's a designer and Peter Schreyer knows him. He's probably going for money and general experience with premium design rather than specifically to do an exotic.

    Oh, and nobody will spend $150,000 for an exotic car with a Genesis badge.
